What Rhymes With “Feels Great?”


Yep, 24 hours after busting below my previous low-low (and needing almost a month to do so), I achieved my third-stage goal of 208 pounds — and did it 24 hours ahead of schedule.

This is the first time since starting this diet in March that I’ve actually hit my target on or before the deadline. Come to think of it 08.08 is the obviously appropriate date to achieve this milestone, which represents the lowest weight I attained during my 55-pounds lost between January and July of 2006.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
